Spherical Magic — The Spectrum of Creativity
Spherical Magic is the fusion of the vision, talent and ability of two accomplished Artist-Engineers into one force of creativity. The combining of resources and assets has proven fruitful in the completion of many large joint projects. A major mural and a major glass sculpture and two huge mobiles were among the first to be realized. With many more to come, the formation of a unified location to foster these efforts was nigh.
A new studio on San Juan Island has been moved into that allows for the many disciplines and the equipment required to support our effort, with ample land for expansion.It currently houses:
- A glass blowing studio for hot glass, cast glass, warm glass and cold working with water-cooled glass saws, belt sanders and grinder/polishers.
- Enclosed abrasive blasting cabinet for glass etching and carving.
- Computer network of 10 Windows, Macintosh and UNIX machines for image processing, animation, film editing and design.
- Traditional 5' and 6' drafting tables w/drafting machines.
- Custom hydraulic scroll table for murals and large canvas.
- 44" 11-color Giclée printer for on-demand, artist-controlled museum quality printing.
- Color proofer for offset printing quality control.
- Framing table for custom mats and frames.
- Carbon Fiber Lab.
- Complete Wood Shop.
- Arc Welder.
- Two Artist-Engineers and a few studio cats - most of which are Maine Coon and Bengal rescues.
- We need a Bridgeport Milling Machine and Small Engine Lathe.
We're out of space in the studio already, so a rustic barn workshop has been designed to be built on a yet to be selected property here on the island. It will house the shops on the first level, living quarters on the second level and design studio and sleeping loft on the two third levels. To that end, we are offering an Angel Program of free artwork at many various levels of support, so that we can build our shop to continue our work—with weather no longer being a factor in our schedule. Check it out. It's really a great deal.SphericalMagic.com is a unified hub for our creative services:
